How to add URL service endpoint information into GOC-DB

For monitoring purposes, each service endpoints registered into GOC-DB with the flags production and monitored should include the endpoint URL information in order to be contacted by the relative nagios probe.

The information needed for service type are:

  • CREAM-CE: the queue URL where the ops VO is enabled. This is the value of the attribute GlueCEUniqueID published in the BDII (e.g.
  • SRM: the value of the attribute GlueServiceEndpoint published in the BDII (e.g. httpg://
  • Other service types: the value of the attribute GlueServiceEndpoint published in the BDII

Get the information

For retrieving the queue URL from the BDII, you can simply use the command lcg-infosites executed from an UI. Be sure to query a production Top-BDII: you can either set the one provided by your Operations Centre or choose one from

For example:

$ export

$ lcg-infosites --vo ops ce | grep nikhef
  5680      15          0            0       0
  5680      17          1            1       0
  5680      15          0            0       0
  5680      15          0            0       0
  5680      16          0            0       0

For getting the GlueServiceEndpoint URL of your SRM service, you can launch a ldap query to your site-bdii (or also directly to the SRM service):

$ ldapsearch -x -LLL -H ldap:// -b "mds-vo-name=NCG-INGRID-PT,o=grid" '(&(objectClass=GlueService)(GlueServiceType=SRM))' GlueServiceEndpoint
dn: GlueServiceUniqueID=httpg://,Mds-Vo-name=NCG-INGRID-PT,o=grid
GlueServiceEndpoint: httpg://

In a similar way, by just changing the value of GlueServiceType, you can get the endpoint URLs of other services.
